We’ve all come to know Marc Nelson as the fit and hot host
of Metro Channel’s travel show, Beached. And
it does signify his life quite well since he is, himself, a beach and water
lover, an adventure seeker, and a huge traveler.

Marc was born and grew up in Australia, but he’s been all
over the world since then. That’s why his nomadic lifestyle has not really
given him the opportunity to settle down and build his nest. But in the last
decade, Marc has decided to finally set his roots in the Philippines. This is
why his home in Manila is very precious to him, since it was the first home
he’s really built to last him, hopefully, a lifetime.
The house was built 10 years ago, but Marc says that it has
gone through so many iterations in the past years. For him, “A home is always a
work in progress,” that’s why he’s always moving and changing things around to suit
his changing tastes and style.
But despite the many changes that has happened around his
space, one thing’s remained the same: it represents Marc’s colorful and vibrant
nomadic lifestyle, a sort of tribute to the many experiences and cultures he
has had the honor of seeing in his life.

“I find that [my home is] very indicative of my life,” says
Marc. “Since I was a young child, I’ve been traveling, living in different
countries all over the world…so I figured when I finally built a home, one that
I could call my own where I would be living hopefully for the rest of my life,
I wanted to bring flavors and tastes of each of the places that I’ve been. And
every piece has a story, things that I have collected over decades.”

Currently, Marc is in a long-distance relationship with
Puerto Rican model Krystal Xamairy, and they’ve been seen together in many
photos in Marc’s Instagram. Marc’s home has always been the quintessential
bachelor pad, the venue for many of his friend’s most epic parties—but will
that change in the next years as Krystal makes more and more of an impact in
